Pakistan registered a nail-biting win over Sri Lanka in the second T20I as Shadab Khan hit a six off fourth ball of the final over to give Pakistan the upper hand in a tight match.
“Our bowlers did really well to pull Sri Lanka down form their position of strength while they were batting. The fielding too was really really good. And then Shadab at the end, hitting that six, that was a million-dollar shot,” captain Sarfraz Ahmed said post the match in an Indian Express report.
Pakistan won the game by two wickets to clinch the three-match series. “In that crunch situation, on this difficult pitch, that shot was very difficult. Our youngsters are putting up big performances. We back them, our coaching staff backs them and they are coming good even in high pressure situation.”
“We have a New Zealand tour, and we can’t be batting like this then. We are trying to improve and hopefully we do before going away. Good that we’ve won the series now, but we are looking forward to the game in Lahore. Hopefully the ground is full and the people support Sri Lanka as well,” Ahmed added.
